Why Join Ithaca College ACDA?
- ACDA is a nationally recognized professional organization.
- Membership includes a subscription to the Choral Journal. This national publication, issued monthly, contains articles and columns of a scholarly and practical nature, in addition to reviews of newly released CD recordings, books, and printed music.
- We provide opportunities to attend workshops and events designed to enhance your choral knowledge.
- We provide opportunities to volunteer at Ithaca College, at events and activities such as the Ithaca College Choral Composition Competition and the Ithaca College Gospel Festival.
- Membership is a great addition to any résumé.
- One of the best reasons to join — you'll have opportunities to attend yearly conferences for each state and region. These conferences offer masterclasses, clinics, and lectures from top music professionals. They also feature performances from some of the best choirs in the country of all ages and voicings. Plus, you get to network with some of the one million-plus ACDA members from across the United States. This includes some of the biggest names in choral music, including conductors, educators, singers, composers, arts managers, and music publishers.
- We attend the national conference every other year. The next national conference will take place in Spring of 2021 in Dallas, Texas.
- On the years we don't attend a national conference, we attend a regional conference. The next regional conference will take place in Spring of 2022 in Boston, Massachusetts.
